Bought SlingPlayer for your mobile device from the Sling Media Store? Want to transfer your registration?

Here is how to transfer the registration for SlingPlayer products purchased from the Sling Media Store.

To transfer registration keys to or from devices supported by the Sling Media Store, you must have purchased SlingPlayer from the Sling Media Store. SlingPlayer for iPhone, iPad, Android Phones, Android Tablets, and Windows Phone are sold from their respective authorized stores and can only be transferred from one device to another of the same type, according to the policies set by the store.


Applicable Versions of SlingPlayer

SlingPlayer for Blackberry

SlingPlayer for Windows Mobile

SlingPlayer for Symbian

SlingPlayer for Palm



If you bought SlingPlayer from the Sling Media Store:

  • Your SlingPlayer registration key is only good on one device at a time.

  • You can transfer your original registration key and email address combination to your new device as long as SlingPlayer is available for that device in the Sling Media store.



To transfer your registration:

  • Go to the Sling Media Online Store (see the link to the right).

  • Download a "trial" version of the software that you need.

  • Register your new device using your old key. When you do this, your old device is un-registered automatically, and you are sent an email verifying the change.
